I would highly recommend the recently released "Let it Rock" CD, which features the original JGB combo of Garcia, Nicky Hopkins on keys, Ron Tutt on Drums and John Kahn on Bass.

The sound is phenomenal and the tunes are extraordinary. Versions of "That's what love..", "FOTD", "TLEO" never sounded better (think mellow and groovy), and there are also some extended jams on the Hopkins originals, like "Edward the mad Shirt Grinder", which are really cool.

It's a 1975 show, and Garcia's voice is in excellent form. It's a keeper.

Gotta chime in on "Let It Rock". Great sonic quality and great combination of Jerry and Nicky. One of the best "Sitting In Limbo" I have heard. Well worth the price of admission in my opinion. the interplays, traded leads, arpeggios between the two are really sublime in places.
